Proof Gold Buffalos (NGC Certified)
NGC Certified Proof Gold Buffalos - In 2006, the United States Mint introduced its first 1 oz .9999 fine Gold coin: the Gold Buffalo. These coins were instantly a huge success, providing competition for the Canadian Gold Maple Leafs. Proof coins are struck on specially prepared planchets that give the coins a mirrorlike appearance, in which the design appears to be floating over the liquid of the background. In this category, the Gold Buffalos you will find feature more than just a beautiful, classic design: all have been certified by NGC, one of the top two coin grading services that uses the Sheldon Grading Scale from 1 (barely identifiable) to 70 (absolute perfection).
The Gold Buffalo coin is designed after James Earle Fraser's famous 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel. The obverse shows the well-known Indian Head design, created by combining images of three Native American chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne) and John Big Tree (Seneca). The reverse features the classic buffalo design modeled after Black Diamond, the bison living in New York City's Central Park Zoo in the early 1900s, as well as inscriptions of the weight, denomination, and Gold content.
